Somebody now is shying slightly away from what critics say is a shameful credit-grabbing stunt from the legislator who fought tooth and nail in congress to relieve the woes of our city from bondage to the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), and who has vowed to take the creepy fight over to the Bi-Cameral Conference Committee that will ultimately grind the BBL to its final form.

Mayor Beng Climaco now says, if there is anyone who should get the credit for the intention of the national government to purchase the Cabatangan properties from the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), it should be President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

You are right, Madam. What is wrong is to grab one’s credit for the undeserved honor.

Hello, Jessa-who you, for stirring the hornet’s nest, that what gtou master gets. Patas? Laslagas-lagas tastas Gracias.

Pres. Duterte warns of another supposed ruckus or “near revolution environment” that might erupt in Mindanao if the bill creating the Bangsamoro region is not passed into law.

Right-o, Sr. Presidente, let your men pass it as you so please.

Just keep us out of the Autonomous Bangsamoro Region (BR) and retain the Cong. Celso Lobregat-pitched inclusions in the approved Congressional version when it is passed in final form in the Bi-Cameral Conference Committee level.

These include: The holding of only one plebiscite, the issue on territory, contiguity issue, public order and safety, Napolcom, police and military concerns and the issue on the Cabatangan property.

Any which way one looks at it, the BBL I a done deal. Repeat, We just have to ensure the cited foregoing Lobregat insertions remain in its final version at the Bi-Cam.

But of course, Lobregat is a member thereof.

Antonio Trillanes IV would be “alive and in pain” if the latter continues to insist that she will run for a Senate seat in 2019.

Trillanes reportedly suggested during a general assembly of Tindig Pilipinas that the presidential daughter would run for Senate in 2019, and for President in 2022.

But Sara was not having any of it as she urged Trillanes to just leave her alone in peace and in Davao if he wants to “remain relevant for the future generation.”
